The Future of Energy in the Atlantic Basin

Edited by Paul Isbell and Eloy Alvarez

The product of strategic collaboration between CTR and Orkestra (Basque Institute for Competitiveness) at Deusto University, this volume draws out a broad new view of the future of energy in the Atlantic Basin. The author comprise a diverse range of Atlantic Basin energy thinkers and practitioners. They provide a multifaceted view of the new and evolving energy land- and seascapes of the Atlantic Basin, including the shale, offshore and low carbon revolutions. The overall result not only allows for new perspectives on a global sector in transformation but also helps reveal a new Atlantic world, grounded in emerging energy dynamics for cooperation.

Africa and Latin America are given special focus in recognition of the new “Southern Atlantic” as a key creative component in any new Atlantic Community. Other innovative perspectives are also showcased, including sub-state regional or municipal views and a new revealing angle of analytical vision provided by the “Atlantic energy seascape.” Energy policy and regulatory reform are analyzed from both traditional and “pan-Atlantic” points of view, while nascent “pan-Atlantic” cooperative mechanisms (like the Atlantic Energy Forum) are introduced.
